New: Media Playlists With Downloads

We get a lot of requests for downloading media to the device, now it’s available!

Create playlists for your music, videos, or podcasts. Your app users can play the media in their app, and download for use offline* (Downloads not available in the starter plan).

The new media list page uses the WP-API to pull in your playlist, using any type of post from your WordPress site. Just add the media url to the AppPresser media url meta box and then create the media downloads page in your app.

Some setup is required, view the full setup instructions here.

Downloads using WordPress iframe pages is not available, but may be in the future.

How it Works

The media list displays a list of your posts through the WP-API, similar to a normal post list. When the app user clicks the post, it opens the media player to play your video or audio file. If they click the download icon, it will download the file to their device to it can be viewed offline.

You use any WP-API route, such as, but only posts that have a media url in the post meta will show up in the app. To add the media url, update to the latest version of the AppPresser plugin, and set it up as described in our documentation.
